Adam Silver: Warriors' recent run of dominance not bad for the NBA

Adam Silver: Warriors' recent run of dominance not bad for the NBA

Does the NBA have a parity problem? Commissioner Adam Silver says slow down. 

“It’s on me and our labor relations committee ultimately to sit with the players and their committee and convince them that there may be a better way of doing things,” Silver said Tuesday after the NBA’s Board of Governors meeting. “By that, meaning change ultimately in the Collective Bargaining Agreement. ... I don’t necessarily think it’s, per se, bad that the Warriors are so dominant. We’re not trying to create some sort of forced parity. What we’re really focused on is parity of opportunity.”

The Warriors have made four straight NBA Finals, winning three titles in that span. In free agency, they have added superstars like Kevin Durant and now DeMarcus Cousins, who signed a one-year deal for just $5.3 million. 

Even with the outcry against the Warriors, the NBA is as popular as ever and it isn't slowing down. As far as the Warriors go, they are enemy No. 1 with a target on their backs that every team has been gunning for this offseason. 

For Silver, the commissioner craves competitiveness. And that's exactly what he believes he's getting. 

"Let me make clear, under the current system right now, we want teams to compete like crazy," Silver said. "So I think the Warriors, within the framework of this deal, should be doing everything they can to increase their dominance."

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph Curry lived up to his Splash Brother moniker on Sunday, and jumped into Lake Tahoe after losing a bet with his father, Dell Curry, at the American Century Championship.

The Splash Father bet the Splash Son he would trail by fewer than 20 points at the end of the tournament. The elder Curry had room to spare on Sunday, too, and was just 18 back of his son. 

The two-time MVP was a man of his word. 

 

Last year, the Currys made the same bet, and it was Dell Curry who had to purify himself in the waters of Lake Tahoe. He tied for 30th at the event this year, while Curry tied for 11th.

Move over, China Klay. Tahoe Steph is making a "triumphant" return of his own. 

Last summer, Warriors guard Steph Curry unsuccessfully tried dunking on a hoop on the course at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe.

On Friday, the hoop made it 2-0. 

Would Golden State remain resounding favorites to three-peat as NBA champions if the team had to play every game in golf attire? Maybe that's how commissioner Adam Silver can achieve "parity of opportunity."
